Irodori Revisted @ Four Points by Sheraton

DSC_3167

Since 2012, I have been faithfully paying Irodori visits annually and really, apart from the price and variety that keeps us going back there is no bigger pull factor.

I managed to get a private room this time for 11 of us and it was already quite cramp, the other available dining room could only accomodate 6 so large parties are not recommended. As much as I tried not to over order, we always end up with a table filled with so much food, just looking at it makes me go into a food coma, much less attempt to eat up a storm.

Here's what we inhaled and had more than seconds off!

Instead of green tea tofu, there was ordinary tofu this time round topped with tempura bits and fish roe.

On top of their complimentary mentaiko prawns, salmon belly was also served. Unctuous slabs of omega 3.

Sashimi Moriwase

The first order was the most generous, subsequent rounds become shoddier for obvious reasons and knife work was lacking.

Irodori Maki

This is still a favourite of all the maki rolls at Irodori, plumped by a delectable lobster salad filling and rolled in rice finished with fish roe  and squirts of mayo - as decadent as that sounds, it was definitely yonks away from authentic but so delicious!

Spider Handroll

Horribly disproportionate in terms of rice, soft shell crab and seaweed yet no complaints on this.

Hiyashi Tomato

This was probably no imported Japanese tomato yet the plum dressing and chilled tomatoes were exceptionally refreshing.

Mixed Tempura

Thick batter which is synonymous with most tempura dishes but there was good variety.

Fried Rice

Consistently yummy with fresh prawns too! This was so good, I had at least 3 bowls.

Surprise, surprise! This actually tasted better than instant noodles with a lovely bite.

Turns out they have improved since the last visit or perhaps it was really the lack of crowds that made our visit way more pleasant. No more forgotten orders since all of them are logged in electronically!
